Originally from the suburbs of Paris, Nicolas Delfaud dreamed of being a vigneron. Domaine Nicolas Delfaud was officially created during the autumn of 2015 when he rented 4 hectares of Chardonnay and Gamay vineyards in Verzé. The vineyards of Verzé had already been sought out by the likes of Domaine Leflaive who now own 30 Hectares there that serve as the base of their Macon production.
From the very beginning, Nicolas knew he wanted to work organically, and he has been in conversion since his first vintage in 2016. Nicolas, like all good vignerons, believes wine is made in the vineyard. Every effort is made to bring the necessary care to the vines in order to allow this limestone-rich terroir to speak for itself.
His vineyards lie on eastern-facing slopes at about 350-410 meters in elevation. Harvest is done by hand in 40 kg crates in order to best preserve the integrity of the grape from vine to press. In the winery, fermentations are carried out with indigenous yeasts, and wines are vinified on the lees with little intervention.
